With the continuous development of the Beijing International Film Festival (BJIFF), the number of organizations participating in the Beijing Film Market has been on the increase year by year, which features ever-richer types. Due to drawing the increasing attention from the industry, the Beijing Film Market has become the weather vane of the Chinese film market. In the past eight years, the BJIFF Beijing Film Market sector had an extensive connection with industry resources, attracted enthusiastic participation of the industry insiders, and has cooperated with more than 1,000 Chinese and international film and television organizations. It has been an effective platform for resource aggregation and interactive exchanges.
To create an “always open” Beijing Film Market, establish a long-term and normalized service mechanism for the film and television industry, and strengthen industrial resources agglomeration and interactive exchanges, the Beijing Film Market has implemented the Market Membership System since 2018, further catering to market demands and benefitting organizations and industry insiders who continue to support the BJIFF Beijing Film Market for years.
